100% Irish Bear

     Friday means a new challenge at QKR Stampede and you should all know by now how much I love their images!  This week the theme is "Bring on the Green" so I had to do another St. Patrick's card in honor of both my heritage and my St. Paddy's birthday.  :-D  (Digi 10003 - Irish Bear & Digi 16907 -100% Irish)


I took inspiration from the photo at {Pin}spirational.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/141581982011762346/

     I used ProMarkers to color the image which was printed onto the card front for a single layer, CAS card.  The only embellishment I added were the three die cut flowers and the gems in the middle of them.  I really wanted the image to say it all and I think it does.

  20. I love those three little kitties at the top. Long time ago I had a white one and honestly she lived 23 years and she had a blue eye and a green eye and I call for messy I'd really loves her. I do have to say your little card is just darling your bear is so cute it works perfect as a clean and simple card. I have to try and stop by more often. So you have 100% does that mean that you are all Irish or is that mean the little bear is Irish?
    Hug,Pat/♥
